recommendation of the joint chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening uabout 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is captai
political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it. specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
of egypt. shouldn't someone in the obama administration thought to maybe rescind this gift after egypt's current president mohammed morsi has come out and made such comments as this it. >> >> all right. should we really be arming this guy with fighters jets and american tanks? now, i wonder if any this have is going to come up tomorrow when secretary of state hillary clinton heads to capitol hill to talk about benghazi attacks that killed an american ambassador and three others in september. and two of the lawmakers who will be able to ask secretary clinton tough questions that need to be asked, senator barrasso and. this is 2010, senator barrasso, this is mohammed morsi guy saying things like america is enemies, the israelis are blood suckers, war mongers, descendents of apes and pigs, he said that about two years ago and now we're going to give him f-16 fighters jets and give him tanks on top of the 1.5 billion dollars we're giving the former head of the muslim brotherhood. help me out, senator, that sounds really dumb. >> i just returned from israel and from afghanistan, john mccai
the obama administration. some of that is pos/t 9/11. in los war will lead to a decline in information transparency access. anytime you can have less sequence -- secrecy, that is good. less secrecy is needed. it was handled at the outset by partnering with newspapers like "the guardian," traditional newspapers of distinction. wikileaks released documents around the world to newspapers in india, haiti, the middle east, latin america. it has had an impact in countries we do not know enough about. we're doing a project with six editors in latin america to look at how wikileaks has played a role in their politics. >> the media got distracted by the personality issues with julian assange. it is a fascinating, dark, twisted story, whatever is true. " people got obsessed with it. >> that is what happens. >> we have a cover story on the kim kardashian wedding now. [laughter] >> you have to pay the bills. the serious side of kim kardashian. >> i do think it is a problem. we are undertaking a project next year, the kind of project inspired by the works project to have the team across the country

, very very few other people reported it basically telling the obama administration you have got to stop. that's what his own debt commission told him, you have got to stop, all right? he is not gonna stop. he is going continue to crease the spending. >> i don't know that that's going to be very possible in the short-term. >> bill: that's what he wants to do. maybe won't get through the house, but he wants to increase the spending rather than do what the gao recommends. >> i one of the things that you said in the president's speech yesterday and set up at the talking points at the top you said it will be impossible for him to do everything he wants to do. part of yesterday's speech recognizes that, instead what the president was doing was enunciating those principles for history. i think he knows that he has got a very difficult slog in this congress over the next four years, he wants to be able to say here is the goals, here is the direction i'm pointing in i don't know exactly what we can achieve but this is what we want to do. >> bill: i want my president to be a problem solver and i
dollars that were given away as part of the obama administration's stimulus plan, money that the government promised would transform our rail system. it was a very ambitious plan, no doubt about it, when it was first announced. the president, vice president, ray lahood, all of the white house announcing a $13 billion plan to bring high-speed rail to america. listen. >> imagine whisking through towns at speeds over 100 miles an hour. walking only a few steps to public transportation. and ending up just blocks from your destination. imagine what a great project that would be to rebuild america. >> that was the idea. sounded great. bullet trains literally whisking passengers between american cities. the president outlining his plan to make it all happen. well, $8 billion in stimulus money to start and $1 billion a year thereafter to match local projects. keeping them honest now. it is now three years later and we can't find any high-speed rail that's actually been built. certainly not on this farmland in california, an area tapped as a high-speed train route. you'll see fie
, t.j. this is certainly a setback for the obama administration. the white house sharply criticizing this ruling and pointing to the fact that presidents going back 150 years have engaged in appointments, recess appointments. ronald reagan made more than 200. george w bush made more than 100. at issue in this instance is the senate technically in recess when they are in a pro forma session. pro forma means that senators aren't really here. they're not getting any work done. but they are gaveling into session every few days. the obama administration has argued that means that the senate is in recess. this court ruled otherwise and disagreed with the obama administration. republicans are praising this ruling. today they are saying it was the right ruling and that president obama really engaged in overreach when he made those appointments. so to your second question, t.j., what happens now, at this point in time the justice department not weighing in on what it will do next. but if you talk to legal analysts, they believe that the administration will take this to the supreme court. so t
start to the second obama administration, and it featured presidential appeals to extend prosperity and full freedoms to all americans. as the sun rose over the nation's capital on this monday hundreds of thousands of people began descending on the national mall to witness the occasion. officials estimated 500-700,000 attendees. that was far fewer than four years ago when nearly two million turned out. but today's crowd gave no hint of diminished enthusiasm for the 44th president after a first term that saw bruising battles over health care, financial reform, deficits and spending and more. the man they came to see began his day with a morning prayer service at st. john's episcopal, near the white house and often called the church of the presidents. he was joined by first lady michelle obama and their daughters malia and sasha as well as vice president biden, his wife jill and members of their family. afterward at the white house, they hosted a bipartisan group of congressional leaders for coffee and then the president began the drive down pennsylvania avenue. all the while lawmaker
perspective who wouldn't want to be here? but more importantly for me, the whole of the obama administration is everything that i hold dear >> suarez: margaret came up with her family from north carolina. for her a second inauguration for the first black president was no less exciting, no less worthy of celebration than the first one. >> i'm 69 years old. i never thought i would live to see a black president. a black family. i really didn't. i think it's beautiful. it is really history. it's martin luther king's birthday. things that he even talked about and dreamed of, it is happening. people of all races are coming together, praying together, worshipping together, going to school and work together. there's a problem but if we all work together, we can, you know,... it will be beautiful >> suarez: it's very hard to be a short person in a very large crowd. you guys know that already, right? this family drove all day yesterday from chattanooga, tennessee, to reach the mall early. charles bass told meal he could not afford to miss another obama swearing-in >> again. we actually missed the firs
for the obama administration to stand strongly on the side of fairness and equality. one of them is that the supreme court is going to take up marriage equality in march. his department of justice will have the opportunity to put in briefs and we know that the obama administration is opposing the so-called defense of marriage act. i think the real question that came up at the white house press briefing is whether they will oppose the discriminatory prop 8 from california. the question is whether states can discriminate and what the president thinks about that. i hope that he will take the logical next step from his beautiful remarks yesterday and weigh in on both issues. >> john: wayne let me put it to you. we saw it in the first term. the president took away don't ask, don't tell for our troops serving and even more powerfully, came out in favor of marriage equality even if that wasn't any policymaking on his part. what would you like to see him do in the second term? >> we've come so far so fast and what i would like to see the president do is consider openly gay person for cab
-style push to get those stiff gun measures passed, that you just talked about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-ca
little improvement. what is the obama administration or transportation department have to say about this? >> well, you know, this was the first project under this high-speed rail initiative that was completed. and when it was completed, ray lahood, the transportation secretary, was out there just praising that, again, that it came in on budget, came in on time. he said it will move more goods more efficiently, create jobs for the economy up in vermont. and it did increase speeds just a little bit. but it did increase speeds. nothing was said about the fact that this is not high-speed rail. >> you say even more money is going to vermont for high-speed rail. why is more money being spent on the project? >> well, they're still working on this same line. basically another $8 million is going to be spent improving the track on this very train route from what is now the end of the line up to canada. eventually they want to reconnect montreal to this line, thinking that somehow or another, that is going to increase the travel along this line. but again, vermont says, you will never have the hig

the virtue, after eight years then of barack obama and the obama administration, of being seen as somewhat of an outsider. and so it's a better way to go up against a republican, you know, after eight years of the obama administration is to have the first woman. that's the logical event that she basically would clear the field, even among the great friends and admirers of joe biden who i think has been the most effective vice president we've seen. the other small foreign policy point, not so small, the president was saying, ask moammar gadhafi and we wouldn't have what we had against mubarak. look at the headlines overnight. look at the streets of egypt, all over egypt today, egypt is hardly a success story that they should be pointing to. >> that's exactly right. in baseball, we're in the first or second inning of the middle east. this literally could be decades of turbulence. we've already seen the relationship between libya and mali and egypt, there's yet to be anything remotely like the consolidation of a democratic political order. so i think we have civil war in syria, we have unrest
obama said this about the bush administration. it took 42 presidents 224 years to run up only one trillion of foreign held debt. this administration did more than that in just five years. he was right the bush administration did that. but now obama's administration has done much worse. they have run up another 6 trillion in debt. how is that possible when just a few years ago barack obama believed this. >> america has a debt problem. therefore tends to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. >> this year president obama demands congress raise the debt limit without condition. i want the old barack obama back. he made sense. a new guy, he scares the heck out of me. i fear h

attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakist from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to l
